distributing items from a wide range of sources, including
East Timorese groups and ETAN/US, TAPOL, and other support

the Indonesian, Portuguese, Australian, British,
and U.S. press also regularly
appear there, as well as official documents and statements
from the U.N., national governments, and other sources.
